Just like you, I am still in shock over Sonjia not making it to the final four. With the final four, that’s not even final. In boring Project Runway tradition, only three of the four designers are going to fashion week. In order to make it to the final three, the designers have to show three looks and then the judges will narrow it down from there. How many seasons has this happened before?
The designers get nine thousand dollars and five weeks to create the collection. Isn’t this a much shorter time than usual?
Of course this is the episode where Tim goes to the designers’ homes and sees what they created. First person that Tim goes and visits is Christopher in Massapequa, NY. Let me just add that Tim looks ever so dashing. Christopher has ton of work done. Christopher inspiration comes from an x-ray from his mother after she was in an accident. I LOVE IT. It’s actually a print he created and it’s amazing. My fave part of these episodes is when Tim interacts with the family. It is great to see how he just blends and they just accept him with no qualms.
Next up is Fabio in New York City (or so I think, they never gave a location or I just missed it cause I really don’t care for him.) They meet the family and I love Fabio’s mom and her thick Brazilian accent. She is so stinking cute! Fabio’s collection is Cosmic Tribalism? I will say that I love the shapes, the draping is amazing. The colors I could do without. They are so pastelly and the shoes that he wants to put with them… so freaking clunky.
Tim goes to Jersey City to see how Dmitry is doing. Dmitry’s pieces are so structured and just simple yet amazing. He does have a few pieces that because of color choices, it might throw you off. Dmitry goes into his back story and Tim gets emotional and I love it! Dmitry is so talented. If he doesn’t make it to the final three, I would be so shocked.
Lastly, Tim goes to San Francisco to visit Melissa. Melissa shows Time this jacket which is to die for. This has shocked me. She has a great collection that is much unexpected from Melissa. I think she would be a great choice to be in the final three.
The designers come back to New York City to a new work room and the critique everyone else’s work. Christopher is so dang catty. Tim comes in to inform the designers that tomorrow they go in front of the judges with three looks. Melissa starts to doubt herself. Fabio does some changes to his collection but Tim still has some hesitation about it. The judges could either love it or hate it. Christopher doesn’t know what to show. Dmitry isn’t going to use any other colors other than black and white which concerns Tim.
Fabio is first on the chopping block. The judges love his collection, well Nina not so much. Nina wants some sophistication in his collection. Dmitry is second on the block. The only problem is with his styling, there were something’s that shouldn’t have been paired together. Heidi loves Christopher’s collection, but she wants a wow piece and calls part of it boring. Nina thinks his collection is gonna be hoochie. HA!
Melissa is the final designer that the judges grill. The judges feel that the collection is very “Melissa,” but it doesn’t knock them off their feet.
When the judges discuss the contestants, they GRILL them. Its hella funny.
They all go to fashion week.
THIS SEASON BLOWS.
